“If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence. When I thought, ‘My foot slips,’ your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.” Psalm 94:17-19

Our LAC Missionary Conference theme this year was this verse from Acts 13 – Lights for the World! Read more about the theme in our newsletter. (click the link above) I had some fun making different graphics with our logo from Visual Faith artist Karen Hunter. The graphics were used for the bible verses, theme, schedules and announcements, being sent out to the missionaries during conference week.

Our new Spanish Hymnal is out and about around the region! Missionaries Pastor Lucas and Agatha from Brazil (serving in the Dominican Republic), have been using their musical gifts to record some of the hymns. Click below to hear “Bautizado en Cristo soy” / “I am baptized into Christ!”. This hymn was the theme for our VBS this year in the Pueblo Nuevo mission
